Event Hooks

Event Hooks allow you to be notified of certain events within Okta so you can more tightly integrate with or kickoff processes in downstream technologies. Potential customizations made possible by Event Hooks include:

  • Send authentication context to external database
  • Push that a password has been reset or changed to security systems
  • Notify an IT Slack channel of suspicious activity

Inline Hooks

Inline Hooks allow developers to modify inflight Okta processes with custom logic and data from a non-Okta source.

  • Registration inline hook: Extend self-service registration with external custom logic or 3rd party services
  • SAML and token inline hook: Ability to interrupt the authorization flow to insert claims into an SAML assertion or JWT
  • Password import hook: Validate credentials in your existing system and move them to Okta
